Lushly photographed in the Danube Delta, this powerful story of forbidden love follows young Mihail (Felix Lajko) as he returns to the countryside after years of absence to discover he has a grown half-sister, Fauna (Orsi Toth). Together they build a house on stilts in the river and become lovers until their idyllic life is broken by violence. A beautiful and disturbing study of cruelty and intolerance,
is the third feature from Kornel Mundruczo, once a protege of Bela Tarr. With an incredible original soundtrack by Felix Lajko. Winner of the International Critics' Prize and nominated for the Golden Palm at Cannes. "Mundruczo's film has been dubbed the Hungarian

does not disappoint" (
). In Hungarian with English subtitles.
